Crockpot Burrito Bowls

The corn tortilla is a small round mystery to me.  I love going out for Mexican food because corn tortillas are gluten free.  In restaurants, the corn tortillas are an easy alternative to flour ones.  But at home, I find that they just fall apart.  So, I attempted one dish served two different ways to see which was best for the corn tortilla.  Turns out, the bowl shape was best!

Crockpot Burrito Bowls

Pieces:

  1. one pound chicken tenderloins
  2. one half of an onion, chopped
  3. 2 peppers chopped, whichever colors are your favorite
  4. 4 tbsp. green verde sauce (I used a jar version found in the ethnic food section), plus about 2 tbsp. more for dressing
  5. 3 tsp. cumin
  6. one bag of frozen corn
  7. one can of black beans, drained
  8. juice of one lime
  9. 1 tsp. red chili flakes

Process:

  1. In the crockpot, put the chicken, onion, peppers, 1 tsp. cumin, and 4 tbsp. green verde sauce.
  2. Cook on high for 2.5 hours.
  3. When the chicken is done, take it out of the crockpot and shred with two forks.
  4. In a saute pan over medium heat, combine the corn, beans, 1 tsp. cumin, and lime juice.  Cook just until heated through.
  5. To serve, you can wrap the chicken mixture in a corn tortilla with an extra sprinkle of cumin and red pepper, place over a bed of corn and beans, and spread green verde sauce on top.  Or, you can line a bowl with a corn tortilla, place corn and beans in it with the chicken mixture on top, and then dress with green verde sauce and a sprinkle of cumin and red pepper.

In a wrap.

In a bowl.
